Easy-Peasy "Paleo" Pizza - No-Wheat Crust!

Easy-Peasy "Paleo" Pizza 
—No-Wheat Crust—

So many families today have special diet concerns and restrictions: no dairy, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, etc. I'm right in there with them, following an anti-inflammation diet that includes not eating wheat and limiting dairy among other things. 

I love pizza, but it always gave me headaches
and I've missed eating it!

Well, I stumbled upon this different-kind-of-crust and EASY-to-make pizza via FB Econobusters with Molly Green who featured this recipe: Paleo Pizza recipe.

Since it was dinner time, I hurried to the kitchen and had the crust ready-to-go in just a matter of minutes.
Very tasty indeed—
My Hubby loved it too!

 Here is the recipe as I made it:

Crust Ingredients:
2 cups almond meal (flour or ground almonds)
2 eggs beaten
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt

1 Tbs seasonings (basil, oregano, parsley, onion and garlic powder)

Beat egg with all ingredients to form a dough. It will be sticky!
Press onto an oiled baking sheet and make a large round, thinning as you go.

Pop it in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for approx 10-12 minutes.

Top with your choice of tomato sauce and toppings. I made mine with sliced onion, cut pineapple and diced red bell pepper. Since I don't eat cheese, I made only half with mozzarella for Hubby. Know what? I don't miss the cheese at all!

Now, place it in the oven for 10 minutes or longer until cheese is melted and slightly browned. 

What an easy lunch or dinner this is! I bet your family will love it too!

 My Cheese-less, Wheat-free Pizza—
Yummy indeed!

Where do you find almond meal or flour? Apart from grinding your own almonds, I bought a bulk bag from a local co-op group through Country Life Natural Foods. I've also seen it in Health Food stores and in a special section at a local grocery store.

Another thing I'm doing for my health is eating more raw foods prepared in some interesting ways. I'm desiring a 50% raw diet but I'm not entirely there (yet) and I'm making some healthy habit changes to regain my health, look good, and feel great. Please visit me at Kathy's Kitchen & Raw Nutrition to see what I've been up to.

I'll also share with you a fantastic "RAW" Pizza from Kathy's Kitchen that does take some time since it has a dehydrated crust, but it is so very good tasting and great for you!
What are some of your favorite pizza toppings?
